Nubra Valley is about 150 km north of Leh, the capital town of Ladakh, India. Local scholars say that its original name was Ldumra meaning valley of flowers. The Shyok River meets the Nubra or Siachan River to form a large valley that separates the Ladakh and the Karakoram Ranges. The average altitude of the valley is about 10,000 ft. above the sea level. The common way to access this valley is to travel over the Khardung La from Leh. Like the rest of Ladakh, Nubra is a high altitude desert with rare precipitation and scant vegetation except along river beds, where irrigated, and on high slopes.Siachen Glacier lies to the north of the valley. The en:Sasser Pass and the famous en:Karakoram Pass lie to the northwest of the valley and connect Nubra with Xinjiang. On the Shyok River, the main village, Diskit, is home to the dramatically positioned Diskit Monastery. 34°36′0″N 77°42′0″E / 34.6°N 77.7°E / 34.6; 77.7
